For all of us pet lovers, it’s hard to imagine life without our furry companions. They provide unconditional love, endless laughter and often become more than a pet; they become a member of our family.
More than 30% of Cincinnatians live in poverty – that’s more than 86,000 individuals. Around the holidays we often think about helping our struggling neighbors by donating food and other resources, but what about their pets?

Although diabetes is a well-known disease, many pet owners don’t realize it’s not only prevalent in humans, but in our pets too. Raising awareness of diabetes in pets is especially important because although it’s not curable, the disease is more manageable the earlier it’s diagnosed. In support of National Pet Diabetes month this November, Veterinarian and Pets In Need volunteer board member, Dr. Jack Walkenhorst, discusses the signs, symptoms and management of pet diabetes.
